The only thing that seemed potentially opaque to me was the transition between:
- Initially showing unindented tasks under a project (looks as though they already ‘belong’ to the project)
- later using the phrase ‘use indentation to structure your lists’
I wondered if that phrase would necessarily have an intelligible meaning for first time users, and in particular whether it would give a clear sense of the relationship between project lines and task lines ?
I wonder if a slightly adjusted sequence would work:
- Flat list of tasks and then ‘@done’ and the “that’s TP – pretty easy …” comment
- Show some indentation of tasks for grouping them, introduce tabs as the belongs to or part of or stage and sub-stage relationship (maybe show collapse ⇄ expand ?)
- Now introduce projects (visual emphasis, giving ‘names’ to lists, but still within the pervasive (TAB -> enclose) framework.
i.e. in brief, perhaps introduce (TABs as structural relationships) before (Projects as emphasised group-naming lines) ?
